The term digital learning seems to become more and more a priority goal for higher education institutions. Digital learning is a reality and business schools are probably late in adapting to this “new” form of learning. But what does it actually mean? What do we need to do to get it right and what are the challenges of providing a digital learning environment? How can we use digital platforms effectively to enhance student learning and progression? What are the advantages and disadvantages? And what does this mean for the role of the lecturer? These are some of the questions this panel discussion explores to shed more light on how we can understand digital learning in management education. We are delighted to have an excellent panel line up for this event, including expertise from academia and industry to discuss those questions and we look forward to an interesting and developmental discussion.
